Wisconsin couples may be aware of the legal divorce option called collaborative divorce that enables married couples to split up without going through elaborate court proceedings. Now, a new non-profit group is working to provide low-income Wisconsin residents the same opportunity to use this type of divorce process. What's more, they can avail the service without burning a big hole in their savings.
The organization, known as the Collaborative Foundation of Wisconsin, brings the advantages of collaborative divorce to low-income residents. A founding member said initially she was quite skeptical about collaborative divorce. However, now she has a lot of faith in a couple parting ways mutually and she is touting the benefits of collaborative divorce to low-income groups who cannot afford high legal fees.
